The Beatles apple logo is (for the most part) only recognizable to people over 40. To most young people today it would just be a green apple. The Stones' tongue may be more recognizable worldwide, but in the States I'd wager that the SYF is more recognizable.

I don't know.
I would bet that there are many more Beatles fans under the age of 40 than there are GD fans under the age of 40.
The GD are/were like licorice after all, whereas, the Beatles continue to have mass appeal, even almost 50 years after the debut of the Apple logo.

Edit: actually, I'll not only bet, I'll guarantee that there are more Beatles fans under 40 just based on Beatles Rock Band game sales.

The Beatles certainly have more casual fans than the Grateful Dead, but I would argue that the GD have more passionate fans than the Beatles. Not to mention that you rarely see the Apple logo anywhere (especially if you're only downloading from itunes) but you see the SYF on almost everything. I see SYF stickers on cars all the time, but I don't know if I've ever seen a Beatles Apple sticker on a car. And I would also wager that at least 75% of those Rock Band game sales are for people over 40.

Clearly GD fans are much more passionate (obsessed?),it would be hard not to be. but are far fewer in number.
Are you on the west coast? I'm in the Philly metro area and I rarely see Dead stickers of any kind on cars anymore. Perhaps you see more because you are closer to the epicenter of Dead-dom?

I'll bet dire (and probably Rob) recognize this tongue quicker.

You can leave me out of your cattle porn fantasies.

I knew you'd be able to bring my hijack full circle and connect it back to the Dead.

I salute you sir.
